The World Health Organization confirmed Wednesday the first-ever fatal case of a subtype of bird flu in Mexico.

It is the first laboratory-confirmed human case of the H5N2 strain of bird flu, or avian influenza, and the first-ever reported case in Mexico.

This strain is different than the bird flu strain that is currently circulating in livestock and has infected three dairy workers in the United States.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
